Parking's kind of a challenge. You may be able to snag a spot on Derby St. itself, or you may be forced to park on one of the warren of side streets.
The small resturant/bar has a warm, casual feel. The patrons are neighborhood folks, mostly young professionals with a few families mixed in.
The Pig has two claims to fame - Mexican nights (Mondays and Tuesdays) and Sunday Brunch. The Mexican isn't authentic, but it is tasty, filling, and cheap - $6.95 for a big burrito with a side of beans and rice, or combos of burritos and enchiladas for the same price.
Sunday brunch is awesome - try the Eggs Commodore. It's like Eggs Benedict, with sausage instead of Canadian Bacon. The hockey-puck sized english muffins are tasty and the creamy hollandaise doesn't taste like it came from a mix. It comes with homefries and a piece of homemade coffee cake for $7.25. The only bad thing about the Pig's brunch is the hours - 11:30 - 4pm, so unless you roll out of bed at 11 on a Sunday morning, you're hungry enough to gnaw your arm off by the time you can acutally eat.
